This morning I found a box while looking for something else.
A box filled with memories.
Filled with letters from my youth.
Letters written to me by friends, boyfriends. Journals that I kept (I do apologize to all teachers who had to read that handwriting!). Faded photos.
Will our kids still have this? Do they still write letters or is it all on whatsapp and BBM and text messages? Photos shared electronically. Never printed out to keep.
I hope that it is not lost. The feel of paper between your fingers, with the memories just there for you to read. One letter and I’m 12 again. Or sitting in my
boring English class.
What a treasure to find.
